All about Ansells

- Ansells Trusted 4 Generations -


Ansells are a true one stop shop offering the best of an Independent Bookmaking Service as well as that of other Bookmakers all under one roof.

We are a Family run firm of 4 Generations and were founded By George Ansell in the Village of Abbots Langley Hertfordshire in 1920.

George was followed into Bookmaking by his son Cyril (Dick) in 1945 and operated runners all over the Hertfordshire area until 1961 when with the introduction of new legislation Dick was granted the first Bookmakers permit issued in the Watford area.

He was joined the same year by his son Brian Ansell and together they opened the first shop under the Ansells banner at Queens Road, Watford. A Shop still in operation today.

Over the following years a number of shops were opened, sold and relocated and in 1983 they were joined by Richard Ansell, son of Brian. Brian Ansell remains a partner to this day along with Richard Ansell who took over the operations of the firm in 2001.

Further shops were opened at St Albans Road, Watford in 2003 and at Katherine Place, Leavesden, Abbots Langley in October of 2006. In 2010 there was a return to roots with the opening of a Telephone betting Service aimed specifically at shop Customers and the firm’s postal areas.

The first shop outside the WD area opened in January 2014 at Holdenhurst Road, Springbourne Bournemouth with further expansion planed within the area. This also commenced the process of rebranding to BetAnsells
